1st of "Ladies" shows
About half of this show was released as Ladies & Gentlemen, which also included stuff from the 27th, 28th, & 29th, but skipped the 26th. At this time, American Beauty had gained them new fans and the Fillmore East had to be booked five days (it was about to close anyway and returning at the end of the year they played the Felt@MSG).
Not the best of the run, and an average '71 show, it doesn't hint that the week is about to get hotter. Still, a couple stand out.
The First Set had monitor problems, so piecemeal listening doesn't much disrupt the continuity. After a couple warms up, Hard to Handle is pretty good for that early, but it's the China>Rider that soars in the best version of the four in the run.
The Second Set is average to below average (Bertha doesn't gel at all), but Beat it on Down the Line-9 is the best of four this week and this may be the single best version of Second that Emotion. It was only played seven times, all of them this month and twice this week.
1st Set = C+
2nd Set = C+
Overall = 2 & 1/2 Stars
Miller source is excellent, natch.
